Smile Start planning for 2 MM

Hi!
I plan to built 2 MM
one will be 4' by 8' and one 5' by 10'
the 4 by 8 will be for different job and the 5 by 10 will be for cabinet job
I start my BOM and one question first, I plan to use the motor PK296A2A-SG7.2
for both MM I read a lot on motor but I'm not confident it is the best motor for the job I want to make whit both MM.
If I use this motor I will use power supply PMDX-135 whit a transformer AN-6438
its 38V 600VA What do you think about that.

Great !

I appreciate you have your reasons to build 2 different size MM.
Through, the difference of size may not induce a significant cost difference.
With two 5'x10', you'll be able to make serial jobs with more efficiency,
un/loading #1 when #2 is cutting, all done with a single hand.
What you want to do on the 4'x8' will be done as fine on a 5'x10'.
With same dimensions, you may build faster,
and maybe get a better price for some parts.

It's just an open question - as far as I'm concerned.
Otherhand, you may not have enough room for two 5'x10'.
Regards.

Ghis,

One thing I would suggest would be assembling the Machine one at a time. As I only constructed on machine, a lot of lessons were learned along the way that could allow a much easier assembly of your 2nd machine. I do understand doing the fabrication “Cutting and welding the base table, gantry, y car etc.” work for both machines at the same time, but believe the assembly and electronics would go smoother one at a time. This is just what my experience has led me to believe. But no matter how you proceed I look forward to seeing you build and wish you good luck.

planning

thank for your comments

Why 2 Table I don't have enough place in my shop for a 5 by 10
the 5 by 10 will be in the cabinet maker shop whit my friend and the 4 by 8 will be in my shop at home and it will be for a lot of different job.
for building process its a friend ho weld the base table.
after that I will finish to built one table before to start the second one.
I plan to built the electronic part on a kitchen table before mounting on machine.

its not my first machine built i already built 2 Joe's cnc the last one is a
cast cnc Rack & pinion I learn a lot during the building process and I still have a lot to learn.

thank
Ghislain
